as an indictment of the obama administration's foreign policy. senators something cane and graham detail what they perceived as major failings in a joint statement that says this. quote, when president obama withdrew all forces in iraq in 2011 over the objections of our military leaders and commanders on the ground many predicted that the vacuum would be filled by america's enemies and would emerge as a threat to u.s. national security interests. sadly, that reality is now clearer than ever. earlier today the deputy national security adviser tony lincoln spoke with iraq's national security adviser to promise american cooperation in helping isolate that local al qaeda branch, isil, and we know they also both agreed they need to get neighboring countries involved more to help rid the area of the terrorists. greg? >> peter, thanks very much. >> fox news extreme weather alert now and historic breeze that hasn't been seen in the better part of 40 years now digging its teeth from midwest to the northeast. fresh snow is polling in making conditions worse in several places like missouri. there is a p

th, the obama administration knew millions could not keep their health insurance. why in the world did they say that? >> many of these problems were made when he was still trying to pass the law. the point he was trying to make very imprecisely is that this law isn't going to necessarily disrupt the insurance plans for measures. it will for some but won't for others because many people obtain their insurance through their employers. now, it's possible that employers will cancel their healthcare coverage and shift people into the exchanges. but the president was really nailed on this one. because i think his words were imprecise. >> 6 million people at least got cancellation notices. how could they not have known that one? >> they absolutely knew it was coming. but i do think that the administration gets past most of the problems with the web site. we know people have lost their health insurance and others have signed up for health insurance under obamacare, some for the first time. and the question as the new year arrives is going to be have more people lost their coverage than hav
